Surviving Covid-19: Virtual Pop-Up Shop

Don’t let Covid-19 slow you or your business down! For my creatives that normally sale your products at vending events, social distancing due to Coronavirus has currently shut down in-person sales. However, you can still reach your target audience other ways. One avenue is hosting a virtual pop-up shop! Let’s discuss the steps you need to take to make this happen.

  1. Select an online platform. When selecting a platform, especially “free” ones, research and make sure you’re not violating any platform guidelines by selling on platform.
  2. Create a script. In the script you need to highlight your product’s sweet spots. A sweet spot is what makes your brand unique and stand out from the rest. Be sure to share how your product solves or relieves problems for your potential customer.
  3. Partner with someone. If possible, collaborate with another business that serves your niche! Working with someone will broaden your audience. You both can tag team potential customers and offer bundles. Click Love Duo for example of an online collaboration.
  4. Set up a system. Make it easy for customers to order your products and make payments. If you’re not directing folks to an online shop for purchases, be sure to collect mailing addresses so you’ll know where to send orders.

I hope these steps are helpful and inspire you to go virtual! During this season we have to be innovative and think outside the box. Be encouraged; you can still get those coins during The Rona!
